The 5030 is a precision instrument designed to calibrate RCD, loop, insulation, earth testers and multifunction installation testers. It accurately simulates RCD trip times and measures currents produced by RCD testers. It replicates loop impedance and auto adjusts for local line impedance. It also provides insulation resistances and measures test voltages and currents.
User control is via the central navigation keypad. Scrolling though menus and settings is intuitive and easy, with measurements and settings shown on the LCD display. For loop and RCD tests the electrical tester connects directly to the dedicated front panel mains socket (regional type sockets available, specified on order).
In these test conditions, if the device under test is faulty, the 5030 auto detects the fault, disconnects the output and warns the user. The 5030 is designed not to trip any RCDs on the local supply. For insulation and continuity, connection is via 4 mm terminals.
Software driven calibration can be performed by connecting the 5030 to a PC/laptop installed with EasyCal software.

Loop Impedance & Auto Local Loop Measurement
With 10 measurement points the 5030 covers a wide range of loop testers. Internal high power resistors are utilised for the loop calibration function, capable of withstanding up to 30 A.
An accurate automatic measurement of the local loop is made by the 5030 and added to the resistor value to give the loop impedance value, allowing for precise loop impedance calibration.
RCD Tester Calibration
RCD trips can be simulated from 10 to 2000 ms. The trip time can be set to predefined values for quick selection, or to a user time via the front panel.
RCD Current measurement is made of the applied RCD test current. Current measurements are true RMS for AC, half wave rectified as well as being able to measure DC tests. The ranges covered are from 6 mA to 1000 mA, with multipliers of x0.5, x1, x2, and x5 up to a maximum of 2500 mA. To avoid false current measurements the 5030 incorporates a ‘pre-test delay’ setting. This feature is for use with RCD testers that produce a pre-test signal. A test current threshold setting (0 to 100 % of nominal current) is also selectable.
Insulation and Continuity
Insulation resistance & test voltage measurement: The 5030 tests the functions of megohm
meters using precision high value resistors up to 2 GΩ. Resistance values can be set via the front panel controls, or via remote control to allow many test points to be automated. Voltage measurement functions
allow accurate test voltages up to 1 kV to be measured whilst under 0.5 mA or 1 mA test conditions.
Continuity and earth resistance: The 5030 precision low ohm resistors allow calibration of continuity functions found on most multifunction testers and insulation testers. Applied test voltages and currents are also measured.
EasyCal Calibration Software
The 5030 can be controlled via Time Electronics EasyCal
software to automate the calibration process. This provides
increased speed of calibration and consistency of results.
